*** 3 months later ***
At the doctors office, I was sitting in the waiting room along with Trey & Aaliyah. Aaliyah wanted to come so bad. She was rubbing my belly, she was acting like she was the father. She my girl. Always there for me.
Doctors Appointment! I was real excited. Why? Because I’m 5 months plus and you know what that mean!! We finally get to find out the sex of my baby. I genuinely happy that I’m pregnant and a mommy to be. I’ll be the best momma I can possible be.
I’ve been anxiously waiting for this day, since that night Trey and I felt all that movement. It was damn there like we was stuck on Stupid our asses different know what to think. The baby was moving left to right. right to left. front to back. back to front. just everything possible way. and to become the best mommy ever I have Trey and Aaliyah on my side. Aaliyah love kids. Oh no babies, cause she said when they reach the age when they start talking the get slick at the mouth, and before you know it Aaliyah is slick at the mouth with them. And Trey, a beginner parent like myself, we’ll work together and have that Cosby family, just with one baby ahah. Aaliyah brought me out of my wonderful daydream.
“So what do y’all want?” Aaliyah ask.
Glad she asked. Smiling ‘I would love a baby boy, and Trey would like a girl. So he can spoil her like crazy’
“Mhmm but either a boy or girl doesn’t matter, they’ll have our love” Trey said kissing my cheek.
‘Aww my baby!’ I said to Trey smiling.
“Aww you too are too cute!” Aaliyah squealed. Causing people to turn in our direction.
‘Sorry don’t mind her, she hasn’t took her medicine, so her mental state isn’t equal.’ I said and laughing. Aaliyah hit me playfully.
“Jaelyn Mitchell. The Dr. is ready to see you.”
Trey got up first to help me up. I placed my hand on my lower back, scooted to the edge of the seat and rolled up. The national way on how pregnant women get up to stand. Trey laughed at me.
‘Stop laughing Trey!’
“ahaha its funny tho you look so cute when you struggle” he said
‘ahah man whatever. Liyah you coming?’ I called her my her nickname.
“Can I!?!” Sounding so eager.
‘Yes, c’mon girl! You fam!’
Laying in the bed. Dr. Gill spread the gel on my stomach and started the ultrasound. I looked over at Trey & Aaliyah, they where smiling from ear to ear. ‘Y’all look so cute over there’ I said laughing. Their smile grew even bigger and they tilted their hands and look up like angels. The Dr. put another layer of gel.
‘Woo! its cold’ I giggled. And I turned back to Trey amd Aaliyah.
“Ohkay here we have the baby’s —OH! OH! MY! what do we have here” pointing at the screen.
Our heads turned sharply to the screen.
‘What?! Dr. Gill!?!’
“Well this is the first for me. Have you felt, a lot of movement?”
‘Yes! The baby’s been quite fiesty, Why!?’ Trey said stepping forward.
“Well brace yourself.”
‘Dr. Gill, please?’
“I rarely have patients, mothers to be with this situation so this is new to the both of us.
‘What is it!?!’ my voice rose and Trey gripped my hand. She was building up suspense and shit like a horror movie.
“Here we go…” she took a breath
“….your pregnant with TWINS!” she finally said.
The room went quiet, I looked around, Trey had that O expression on his face and Aaliyah’s eyes were glossy she was about to start crying, which means I was gonna start in a while but I was in shock.
‘…Twins?’ I said trying to reassure what I just heard.
“Yes, Ms. Mitchell twins”
Trey walked over and kissed me, and Aaliyah came and held my hand. Then I started to cry. Tears of Joy. I stilled couldn’t believe it.
‘Are you sure? Twins? You mean 1, 2? Like baby 1 and baby 2’ I asked.
“Yes I am. And it makes since remember when you were three months and I told you were big for 3 months?”
‘Yes, so that explains it’
“Babe, this is amazing!!” Trey said kissing my forehead again.
Dr. Gill was smiling, “Would you like to know the sex of the babies?”
I looked at Trey he nodded, then I looked at Aaliyah she was grinning.
‘Yes!’ I nodded.
“Ohkay” she pointed to the screen. “Here’s Baby A, and Baby A is….a Girl.” Tears finally started trailing down me and Aaliyah’s cheeks. I saw one fall down from Trey’s eye.
“Ready for Baby B?” Dr. Gill asked
“Yes!!” We all said at once.
“Ohkay so Baby B is…” pointing at the screen. “B fits perfectly because Baby B is a Boy.” The doctor then pointed to a what look like the umbilical cord.
“What’s that?” Trey asked pointing to the same section of the screen.
The doctor chuckled.”While that’s his penis” I don’t know if it was just me but i think all of our jaws drop.
“Damn! Lil man packing like his daddy! Trey exclaimed. Proud moment for Trey. I laughed at him.
“Jae & Trey, you guys are blessed with the children you wanted.” Aaliyah said.
“We are blessed” Trey said.
I wiped the gel off my stomach.
“Congratulations to you two!”
‘Thank you’ I said as we walked out the room back into the office then to the car.
Nothing could express how I feel. I felt as if I was cloud nine.
‘So how are we gonna tell Taylor, Chris and Apollo?’
“Tonight a celebratory dinner” Trey said.
‘Ohkay perfect! Liyah can you text everyone?’
“Well do! What restaurant??” She said back.
“Providence.” Trey stated.
×Special Dinner in honor of Trey & Jaelyn @ Providence at 8×
I read the message back to Trey and Jae. “Yeah that’s cool” they said. And I sent it to Taylor Chris and Apollo.
Well ill be damned. Jaelyn’s pregnant with twins. My twins. Never would of thought. But that Explains the movement, we thought we had just one hyper baby but turns out theres two hyper babies up in there. Imma spoil my babies, spoil them til the death of me. Be the best father I can possibly be and raise my son to the man I grew up to be.
I’ll admit that nigga had a mean ass left hook. But you’ll never hear me say that aloud. I whinced in pain. Layin on the ground, As I got my self together. I saw that nigga drive off. I sat up dusted my shirt off. Then I staggered to stand up. Fck pain hurted like bitch. I lifted my shirt up, and had a couple big ass bruises coming to the surface. I leaned against the brick wall, and ran my hands down my face. When I looked at my hands I saw blood. I could fell myself getting mad, but I was gon handle that shit later. I just wiped the blood from my face and wiped my hands in the lining of my jacket
“Aye! D, You good?”
‘Yeah, nigga I’m good’ my ass was faking and shit. But I wasn’t gon let him know. Nobody was to no that I was vulnerable at this moment.
“So my nigga what you gon do to that nigga. Murk him?”
‘As bad as I want to. I can’t do that to my sister’ you can believe I wanted to do some crazy shit, but Jaelyn was my sister. As much as she believed that I hate her, I didn’t. I actually cared for my little sister.
“Thought you didnt care?” He said smirking amd turning his head.
‘Nigga that’s my sister’ I yelled in his face.
“Aight, well damn instead of yelling at me you need, to tell her whats really up. Yelling at me and gon do or fix shit”
‘Humph. Whatever!’ I said wavng his ass off. I wasn’t hearing that. I just walk off and left him standing there. He was right tho.
“D! You got a sack” a client said walking up to me. I patted my pocket and nodded. He handed me a twenty and I exchanged that for the sack. He walked away as calmly as he approached me.
I wasn’t in the right mind set, since this fcking issue with Trey. In and Out of mind with thoughts.
But what was I gonna do. I can’t do anymore harm to Jae. Cause of this life style, she fcking hates me.
And I can understand why. I was never there to protect her like I should of. When Pops left, I was suppose to be the Man of the house. Pick up where he left off. Be a better man. But I didn’t and look where it got me. Went down the same path as him.
I can’t just go back to Jae or momma. Momma not gon take me back. And with Jae she gon think I’m tryna make it right cause she with that damn Singer. She’ll think i’ll want some of the money or some shit. I got my own money coming in. But i gotta think quick. Jaelyn pregnant and I wanna be in my niece or nephew’s life, their Uncle. In mid-thought my phone rang.
“Got a pick up, you down?”
‘Yeah, I’ll be there’ and I hung up.
I walked around the corner and got in my car. Tinted black windows. You can see out but they can’t see in. I started the car and drove off. I took the quickest route, which meant I would pass mama house. I didnt like driving by there it made me reminiscent, all the pain all the hurt and dumb shit I put momma tho. When I did drive by, there was a black Mercedes in the drive way. The lights where on, and I could see a shadow walk past the window. I kept driving. There was no need or want for me to stop.
It was about another block and a half when i pulled into a side alley. Park in the cut, so my car couldn’t be seen. Got out and jogged to the back door. I knocked. The little window in the door slide open
then closed just as quick. Then a wider window below that opened and my supply fall to the floor. I scooped it up and jogged back to the car. I slide it under the seat. Can’t risk shit. Police be pulling you over just cause you black, that D.W.B., Driving While Black. Strap my seat belt and drove off.
Passing mama house again. Black Mercedes was still there and I saw too figures, sitting on the porch swing. I was looking hard. I could swear it was Jae and mama. But I couldn’t tell so i went on my way. I went back to my corner, packed my pockets and got out and finished slanging.
